. >> rick: we appreciate that. >> heather: on a surprise trip to iraq john kerry has a message for the iraqi government saying iraq should not allow iran to fly african-americans and spiders to the war there. the secretary pushing iraq leaders to end sectarian violence. steve is joining us live from washington with more on this story. >> reporter: the central issue here is whether iraq's president the prime minister, that is, a she'ite muslim is helping to support the assad regime in syria. now, secretary kerry met with iraqi president nouri al-maliki during a visit in baghdad today. those iranian flights were at the top of the agenda. they had what kerry described as a spirited discussion. here is the secretary. >> anything that supports president assad is problematic and you i made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from iran are in fact helping to sustain president assad and his regime. >> reporter: the u.s. believes the iranian aircraft flying over iraq are carrying weapons to arm the syrian government but tehran says they are delivering only humanitarian aid there.

chances in the state department have improved now that john kerry is secretary of state. >> yeah, kerry has been a long time climate spokesman, and if this fight is taken with a climate change context, then we would hope that kerry would say no. >> bill: since he has been secretary of state he hasn't said anything. >> no, he has been a little bit busy over in syria. >> bill: he has. will he say here is our report, and here is what i think you ought to do? >> well, the law could be interpreted either way. my guess is that kerry will be involved and there will be substantial conversations that happen with the white house and kerry. >> bill: ed mar i can has been another champion on environmental issues. he has been way out in front on global warming. he is going to be the democratic nominee, it looks like for the senate seat up there. what -- what difference could he make? he is still talking about it, right? >> yeah, he has been outspoken opponent of the tar sands. so i imagine this will continue to be an issue in his election race. >> bill: are you making it an i
as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l

to senator kerry and i know we have a group heading off to poland on monday to talk about this further. i applaud it as i mentioned. i do hope we will focus on a base on the eastern side with radar facilities. and i think the question is, chris, how does the nondeplowment of the fourth phase of our european based issues it temperature affect us over time. there is technical issues we will be getting into this week with the the pentagon and the state department but certainly i think most all of us applaud the efforts to beef up our missile defense on the west coast chris do you think that kim young unand the north koreans are a threat to the u.s. >> i don't think they have the mechanism to really harm us. i think it puts us in a different place as it relates to negotiating with them. at the end of the day, chris, i know there is a lot of talk, six party talks, all kind of things that are occurring. all of us understand the key to this is going to be china. they are the ones that can affect the behavior of north korea because of the trade issues and certainly support issues coming from chin

of state, john kerry, the vice president, joe biden, who also have to answer for their role in this. people like wolfowitz, cheney, rumsfeld, should not be given any kind of honor in this society. they should be held accountable for the u.s. soldiers that were killed and i think it's many more than 100,000 iraqis that were killed. >> i'm sure. mike, former bush speechwriter david frumm has written a column in which he reveals long conversations held in 2002 with dick cheney. according to frumm, the two men talked less about promoting democracy and how iraq might become a source of oil to the united states. mike, was cheap oil really at the heart of this invasion? >> you know, i wouldn't go that far, martin, but i would say that fears that the persian gulf could be disrupted by saddam and oil, therefore, become much more expensive were certainly part of it. i'm not a huge fan of most of the folks from the bush administration, myself. but i do think that someone like dick cheney did not fundamentally seek to expand american influence, you know, imperialistically or go for big oil profits for

secretary kerry is going to be devoting a great deal of time to it. he is pressing it. and one of his tactics is to step back on his statements on settlements. four years ago he said stop the settlements and then we'll get to the peace talks. now he is urging the authorities to come to the peace table. >> bill: at the briefings, jay carney has been very quick to tamp down expectations for this trip. don't expect anything to be signed or any big agreement. in and of itself the trip is worth going on for the reasons that you stated, but do not expect any tangible results. >> that's right. no announcements are being announced. no plan to release some of the $700,000 in aid that has been held up. >> bill: why is that being held up? >> disputes over attacks by hamas on the gaza strip. >> bill: okay. okay. one of the first things the president did at the airport when he arrived yesterday morning was to -- to look at this installation of part of the iron dome defense system that the president did not make time to go out into the countryside to see it so they brought on
